State Farm Stadium - Glendale, AZ

The home of the NFL's Arizona Cardinals and the annual Fiesta Bowl, State Farm Stadium exemplifies thoughtful design, engineering and technology. The multi-purpose stadium boasts a striking exterior featuring shimmering metal panels that reflect the shifting desert light, while its interior boasts the first retractable natural grass playing surface in North America. Its roof is also completely retractable.

The first event held at the stadium was a pre-season game between the Cardinals and the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2006. Since then, it's hosted an array of events such as Super Bowls XLII and XLIX, international soccer matches, motorsports, corporate and social functions, trade shows and concerts from bands like The Rolling Stones, U2 and One Direction.

With outstanding vistas of the desert horizon, State Farm stadium provides a unique viewing experience for fans. The five-level venue can seat up to 73,000 fans for events, with 88 luxury lofts and over 7,500 club seats for a range of seating options. During Cardinals games, certain sections are designated as alcohol-free family sections. Visitors can take a tour of the facility, which includes a video presentation about the stadium's construction. Tours normally take place Thursdays through Saturdays on non-event days.

State Farm Stadium has three public entrance gates that open 90 minutes before events. There are 14,000 on-site parking spaces, with 11,000 additional privately managed spaces in the area. There are a few hotels within a five-mile radius that provide a range of accommodations.
